    Okay. i am in a bit of a stump. I am not sure how I am liking this mix of fabric. I think that I need maybe one more pinky batik to make it look right. or maybe just playing with the fabric placement. Now I did this in paint shop. it is a computer program. Here is a pic of what I am thinking of doing with the fabric. what do you guys think? this is supposed to be the hidden wells pattern. I know that there are points missing. I I don't have the steadiest hand when it comes to drawing a straight line. thanks for your input.

    An uneven number of fabrics always looks best in that pattern. I don't think you need another pinky batik. You need some kind of a zinger though. You might try a different order of strips and see what you get.

    the colors are beautiful, maybe switching the purplish color with the burgundy

    whatever you choose I am sure it will be beautiful

    I'm thinking there is a lot of grey in the colors. Maybe switch out the grayed gold with a brighter yellow to make the purples pop?

    okay here is another alternate of the fabric. I am not sure yet if it is how I like it. You guys are the best at helping me make up my mind.

    same set of fabric just different placement of the burgandy and the lite one.

    I like the most of the first one better. BUT keep the center block where you have it from the second setup.
